  1. This is intended to be more informational than a complaint-in-nature or need for help. I have found, at least on my computer system, WHY PMDG aircraft keep disappearing from my installed library (Control Panel). I have an Alienware 51 R5, and it has with it something called "Support Assist". It helps with keeping the System clean and running at peak efficiency (supposedly). HOWEVER, one of the things it does inadvertently is remove installed PMDG aircraft from the list of installed programs. Meaning, you won't see them in the installed programs list, and PMDG Operations Center won't see them, either. Though, I can still fly with the aircraft, regardless of this unfortunate circumstance. The only remedy that I know of is to RE-INSTALL the aircraft again. This enters them into the Ops Center, registry, and list of installed programs again. This process takes from 15 - 30 minutes, and requires me to reactivate the FS2Crew panels (just in the Panel.CFG, not the entire program), which is a minuscule amount of time. I don't know WHY this program is messing with the PMDG entries. I just know that it DOES. Perhaps a resolution can be found in the future. Since I don't have the ear of either groups of people, I am not sure how a solution can be found. I have repeated / recreated this process now 3 times. System: Windows 10 64bit Home, Alienware 51 R5 i7 9800X @ 3.8 GHz (OC 4.5), 32G RAM, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080
  2. To whom this concerns, I have been using flight simming programs for a great many years, and the enjoyment that I gain from the hobby is often influenced by the many add-ons from talented and dedicated people. I just wanted to extend a very heart felt and kind word of thanks for continuing a project that may have been lost if you hadn't picked it up. I have little to offer than my words of praise and thanks, but I humbly ask you to accept this and remember that you are making a positive, and productive difference in many lives, including my own. Thanks for what you do. PTA is enjoyed.
  3. Interestingly, I got SOOOO frustrated with this process that I clicked on, and held the mouse button and moved the window when the installation update began. To my astounding amazement, while I literally held the window with the LEFT mouse click, the install update completed, and correctly, 1-144. I don't know computer programming. I don't know WHY this worked, but it did. Thanks for the comments. Maybe this reply will help. (sorry for the LONG delay in a response, I work a lot). Cheers
  4. I have downloaded and installed the 747-400 v3 ...9193 version. Loading the Ops Center it says there is an update to .....9195. I try running the install update option. It gets to about 9 of 44 files, and the window closes. I have also installed the 747-800 v3 version, and updates install correctly. I have tried running as Admin, disengaged the antivirus software, and it won't install the update. NOT to mention, downloading the main installer is still 9193, NOT 9195. What do I have to do to get the update to install?
  5. I downloaded the paint kit for the 737 NGX-800/900. I have used this before. However, the download now does not contain the tail NIGHT texture for repainting. It DOES contain the regular tail texture. Where do I find this missing texture? (Tail Night) Thanks
  6. I wanted to take just a moment (amongst ALL the wonderful and inquisitive questions everyone is posting while trying to learn as quick as they can about the NEW 747 QOTS v3 Boeing aircraft) to say a VERY heart-felt... ! ! ! THANK YOU ! ! ! I am sure I will have plenty of questions, as many do now, but before I read ALL the accompanying documentation that comes with this 747 aircraft, I wanted to say how easy the install went. 1. The Navigraph install 1702 installed as it should (for me, I deleted the Navdata and SidStars folder-contents to avoid conflict). Did exactly what it was supposed to do. No out-of-date FMC messages. 2. Updated the Ops Center and aircraft installed perfectly after the updates were installed. 3. Had to update AS2016 - the sky has never looked as good as it does from the 747 v3 captains seat (woo!) 4. VAS is amazingly low considering the details in this aircraft! The visuals are stunning! 5. The SOUNDS are absolutely the best you have brought to the sim-platform to date (IMHO). Sitting with sound-canceling Bose headphones brings this to such a level above all others. 6. The liveries available are stunning. Compliments to those who took the time to make the detailed paints. To sum it up, I am quite happy with this product, just minutes after "opening the box". Thank you, and please let all those involved know WE are grateful for all their hard work.
  7. I have been out of the loop for a while, but isn't it standard ops now to keep the cockpit door shut? Obviously the door would have to open at some time, whether for the fuel loads, manifests, etc. But, in general, does the door simply stay open/shut until pushback?
  8. Thanks for all you are doing! It continues to bring joy to my flight experiences!
  9. In Real-Life, we did a family trip to Anchorage, Alaska (PANC) from Houston, Texas (KIAH), non-stop, years ago. I believe, a 737-800. Regardless, it was roughly an 8.5 hour flight, at around 2900 nm (though Simbrief rates the flight at 7.5 hrs). Let me tell you, it obviously made the flight-distance, but for the passengers, cramped, not fed, and only feeding peanuts was about the dumbest and worst flight of cramped--ness I had ever experienced with any airline (as well as the longest, for me). The scenery below was stunning. The flight was in late June. If I were to do this flight again, I think I would rather go out of Seattle, than Houston, just to shorten the flight. It was uncomfortable, and I felt cramped the whole flight. Not to mention, no food is just ridiculous for an 8.5 hour flight. I never knew these small planes could be so versatile on long-haul flights. I never realized that these smaller planes could fly so far, for so long. However, I see why Boeing is retiring the 747 since their smaller planes can literally do the same longer flights that they couldn't years ago. Considering the flight from New York to London is around 3100 nm miles, perhaps there will be a change from the airlines to the smaller 737? Seems the business model is steering that direction. I took a video of the landing, and posted on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=takH6csSTpo).
  10. Well, I have, but I cannot get the cut-paste function to work with this website. It asked me to allow access to the clipboard, and I did. But, I still cannot cut-paste anything to the post I am trying to write, and I am not about to type the whole thing. And no, can't attach anything, either. I don't know what it is about THIS website that I can't paste or attach anything. Perhaps my security settings? Anyway, yes, it can be done. I have done it for years and it works. Since I cannot post here, perhaps at Flightsim.com website? I know I can cut-paste there.
  11. Thanks to all. I am SOOooo sorry I didn't understand that minor difference. I apologize for my ignorance. Thanks for straightening me out. I am grateful for the feedback, and thanks for always putting out a GREAT product! Cheers!
  12. I just installed the update to the 777 Fs2Crew extra voice / version 2. It seems to run just fine, except I cannot find where the updated FO packs are. I have the same voice versions, as I thought came with version 1 (US1, UK1, EU, AU, and FR). Where is Germany, Scandinavia, Asia, Spain/Latin and Italy? I use the CFG to change to the various voice sets, but there doesn't seem to be a CFG for the added voice sets. What am I doing wrong? Many thanks. Other than this, the version 2 seems to work fine. Of course, I installed with Admin rights from the unzipped file.
  13. I am not finding this on Avsim's library. What did you call it so we can find it? Thanks.
  14. Any NEW news on this wonderful expectation? (i.e.777 FS2Crew)
